    Conditional formatting only working on some cells but not others.

    This has been driving me crazy. I cant figure out why the conditional formatting isnt applying to D11 thru D49, it is only working from C11 - C49. Anyone care to take a look and see what I am missing? Thanks a lot.

    Change all the B11 references to $B11

    Change the CF rules from (for example):

    =LEN(B11)-FIND(".",B11)=2

    to

    =LEN($B11)-FIND(".",$B11)=2

    Hi, BCW!

    You have correct your formula with mixed reference, like this:
    =LEN($B11)-FIND(".",$B11)=2

    And this for all formulas. Blessings!
